Nomadland Wins At The Critics Choice Awards


The Critics Choice Awards, which are voted on by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, were handed out tonight.  I’m not sure how many people actually watched the show, given that it was competing with Oprah interviewing Meghan and Harry.  I watched it while doing some cleaning around the house.  To be honest, I was more into the cleaning than the watching but, from what I did see, it appeared that the “ceremony”  was a bit of step-up for last week’s disastrous Golden Globes.  While there were still a few awkward moments caused by the virtual nature of the ceremony, it didn’t appear to be as a painful as anything happened last weekend.  If nothing else, Taye Diggs was a charming host and Barb and Star were nowhere to be seen.

As for what won, it was pretty much the usual suspects. Nomadland took best picture.  Daniel Kaluuya has pretty much become the new front runner for Best Supporting Actor.  After losing her Globe, Maria Bakalova won a Critics Choice.  Carey Mulligan won best actress for Promising Young Woman.

Here’s a full list of winners.  (You can check out a list of all the nominees be clicking here.)
